New research discovered gene mutations which may help explain the cause of a rare brain disorder called progressive supranuclear palsy(PSP) that drastically impairs walking and thinking
In the study, researchers from Valencia's UCH CEU University have developed new ocular inserts which allow a patient's cornea to absorb more antibiotics than currently available methods.
A study aimed to evaluate an array of MRI methods that exploit endogenous contrasts including relaxation rates, pool size ratio (PSR) derived from quantitative magnetization transfer (GMT), chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST), nuclear Overhauser enhancement (NOE), and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) for their sensitivity and specificity in detecting abnormal features associated with kidney disease in a murine model of unilateral ureter obstruction (UUO).
A study aimed to identify cardio-respiratory alterations during esophagoscopy with or without baloon dilation under anesthesia in children and to investigate the postoperative complications. Complications can occur during esophagoscopy because of applied procedure in children, especially during dilation technic.
A new study, scientists have discovered a new pathway in cells that promotes mitochondrial function during times of stress, a response that can guard against disease as we age. The study was published in the journal Cell.
A study estimates the impact of nutrition and lifestyle on cardiovascular health will be key elements discussed by health professionals during EuroPrevent 2018 in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in April. EuroPrevent is the annual congress of the European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC), a branch of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).
In this study, researchers evaluated the surface of the Earth. Since a few decades, man has been able to reach space, escape from the earth attraction and spend days and nights in a weightless condition. Some major physiological changes have been observed during extended stays, and the sleep duration in space is shorter than on the ground. This study is a novel hypothesis proposing that sleep is partly due to gravity.
In a study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, researchers from Japan examined the effects of osteoarthritis associated-knee pain on depression. Until now, few studies have focused on how knee pain and impaired knee function relate to depression.
Escalating the radiotherapy dose for prostate cancer patients reduced their likelihood of developing recurrent cancer and metastases, but it did not improve their odds of survival, according to an NRG Oncology study know as NRG Oncology/RTOG 0126.
The scientists from Milan, Italy developed an optical mammography (OM), which uses harmless red or infrared light, for use in conjunction with X-rays for diagnosis or monitoring in cases demanding repeated imaging where high amounts of ionizing radiation should be avoided.
Scientists at the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital have identified a "security chief" that plays a key role in the prevention of infections with dangerous gram-negative bacteria like Salmonella. The findings, published in the journal Cell, could help scientists develop new treatments for bacterial infections.
